Anyway the main reason for this is to give you the lowdown on our team kit. I’ve been riding in it since it arrived (with the occasional wash) and honestly it is a great quality kit. (I’m going to avoid being biased as much as I can here!)
It is made by MOA who you may have noticed have their logo on Mark Cavendish and the rest of Columbia’s Team Kit. So quality isn’t an issue, the seams are holding up well and the fit is nigh on perfect. There’s also a radio pocket in the back of the shorts so I can pretend to be talking to the car while bonking over a flyover bridge…
Fit and comfort. Again no problems here, from hour blasts after work to the weekend slogs I haven’t had any issues. The only problem is on very hot days, which seem to be long gone, the black kit is pretty warm. The solution of course is to buy both the black and white set!!! But seriously, all kit nowadays has great wicking properties and even the darkest kit is perfectly bearable on sunny days. The white is still nice and white too; white mitts are more of a problem. While they are nice and white in the packet and when you first put them on, after touching anything other than your bar tape they morph into grey and slowly get worse no matter how many washes you put them through.
The white hasn’t been with us so long, (and seeing as Cervelo Test Team have copied us for the hot season) we think it’s a pretty cool kit. It definitely gets looks when riding through town (maybe just the overweight rider wanting to be a pro).
Grab yourself a set before we sell out and join the friendliest team around.
